Brilliant Ultra Violet™ dyes increase options

We offer a full range of Brilliant Ultra Violet (BUV) and Brilliant Violet (BV) dyes for the ultraviolet (UV) and violet lasers and detector channels of your flow cytometer

Brilliant Ultra Violet dyes, Brilliant Violet dyes, and Super Bright dyes use polymer technology to absorb energy and emit light signal. These molecules are conjugated to antibodies used in flow cytometry experiments. By incorporating Brilliant Ultra Violet, Brilliant Violet, and Super Bright dyes in their experiments, scientists can take advantage of a broader range of instrument lasers and channels—including UV and Violet—to help reduce compensation necessary in panels with multiple conjugated antibodies. Super Bright dyes, Brilliant Ultra Violet, and Brilliant Violet dyes use similar polymer technologies.

Which buffer should I use with Brilliant dyes?

Either the Super Bright Staining Buffer or Brilliant Staining Buffer will work to help resolve polymer dye-to-dye interactions.

Select Brilliant Ultra Violet Dyes and Brilliant Violet Dyes

Brilliant Ultra Violet dyes and Brilliant Violet dyes are a polymer dye-based technology and compatible with both spectral flow cytometry, as well as traditional flow cytometry. BUVs and BVs are dyes used on flow cytometers equipped with UV (355 nm) and Violet (405 nm) lasers.
